Town And Village Will Pick Up Storm Debris In East Hampton

Sep 6, 2011 4:31 PM

East Hampton Village crews will pick up yard debris left by Hurricane Irene that homeowners drag to the edge of their property, according to Jill Helm, the secretary to the Public Works Department superintendent, Scott Fithian. The department will not pick up large piles of brush left by commercial landscapers, she added.

The department does not have a set schedule and will pick up the brush as time allows. Its normal fall leaf pickup program does not start until October, Ms. Helm added.

The East Hampton Town Highway Department will be picking up storm debris on town-maintained roads through this Monday—Labor Day. Residents should leave brush near, but not on, the roadway, said Carol Bennett, senior clerk at the department.

The East Hampton Town Recycling Center on Springs-Fireplace Road will accept brush free of charge until Sunday, September 4, officials said. In Montauk, residents can bring brush to Eddie Ecker County Park free until that same day.

The town opened its Recycling Center on Wednesday, August 31, a day the facility is usually closed, in order to accept storm debris.

Well it would have been nice to know this a few days ago - BEFORE we trucked a dozen huge contractor bags full of twigs and branches we picked up from our yard and hauled them to the EH dump. (sigh)
